Peach Upside Down Cake

That "Betty" she keeps me on my toes- I just love checking out her recipes- I thought you might like this one! It's a twist on her traditional dessert, just top this one with crushed pineapple and peach halves. My family loved this one -even better than the pineapple one- you will too! Enjoy!

How to Make Peach Upside Down Cake


  • 1Heat oven to 350^.
    Melt the butter in a 13x9-inch baking dish in the oven. Remove from oven; sprinkle brown sugar evenly over butter.
    Place peach halves on paper towel; pat dry.
    Place a maraschino cherry in center of each peach half; place cut side down on brown sugar-so cherries are under the peach.
    Spoon the pineapple around peaches.
  • 2Add enough water to reserved pineapple juice to measure 3/4 cup.
    In a large bowl, beat cake mix, juice mixture,oil and eggs with electric mixer on low for 30 seconds, then on medium for 2 minutes. Scrape bowl often.
    Pour batter carefully over peaches and pineapple; spread evenly.
  • 3Bake 45-53 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean and top of cake is golden brown.
    Immediately run knife around side of pan to loosen cake. Place on a heat-proof plate upside down on pan; turn pan and plate over. Leave pan over cake 1 minute so topping can drizzle over cake. (I place a very hot wet towel on bottom of pan to help it along)
    Lift pan and cool 30 minutes. Serve warm or cool.
    "Betty" says store in refrigerator covered- but there is not much left when my family and friends attack it!
  • 4Note:
    Sometimes I bake it in 2 cake pans and freeze one after it is baked and out of the pan. Or I bake it in a 9x9-inch pan and one loaf pan , it works great both ways. Enjoy- I know you will-Yummy....
